Is the bath useful?
In the Middle Ages across Europe, variousdiseases that have claimed the lives of a large number of people. These are the plague, cholera, various fevers. And in Russia they were almost nonexistent. European doctors were surprised to admit that this was facilitated by the fact that there is a tradition in Russia to go to the bathhouse for a long time. There they did not just wash themselves, they cleaned themselves of any infection with steam, brooms and hot water. Europe with the bathing of the whole house, including the servants, in one barrel of water directly in the clothes, lost a lot in front of the Russians. So, let's understand from the modern point of view, than the bath is useful.
Cleansing the skin
In a bath under the influence of hot steam in the firstthe skin is cleaned. All pores are uncovered, they are cleared of accumulated sebum, from dirt. After a bath, the skin becomes not only clean, but also tightened, elastic. In addition, exfoliated dead skin cells, which normally can not leave the skin, give way to young and healthy cells. So, there is a renewal of the skin, its rejuvenation. So the first effect of the bath is immediately visible to the naked eye - the skin comes alive and younger.
Helps with colds
When the temperature rises, the blood begins veryquickly circulate through the vessels, increasing the speed of biological processes in the body. Sputum expectoration begins, the mucus is removed from the nose. Together with them are derived pathogenic bacteria. In addition, many such bacteria simply do not tolerate high temperatures, they instantly die. This is the basis for the protective reaction of the body with a cold - an increase in temperature. And that's why Europe, which did not know the bath, suffered from epidemics. And if you still get a whisk, there will be a release into the air of phytoncides, which remove inflammation and strengthen immunity. This effect can be achieved by splashing a few drops of essential oil of eucalyptus, mint, lavender, etc. on the stove.
Cleansing of internal organs
Useful properties of the bath do not end there. Here out of the body goes not only sweat, but also slags, which are accumulated for years inside. All of us in cities breathe exhaust gases, emissions of factories and factories, we do not always drink well-purified water. And in the bath the metabolism starts at a huge speed and then all the harmful substances are expelled. Therefore, after a steam room, a person feels easily how he was born again. There is a rush of vivacity, not only physical, but spiritual. They say that there comes a feeling that wings have grown and it is possible to solve all unsolvable problems!
Wishing to lose weight
Some still do not believe if the bath is useful,argue that in it a full person is losing weight only on the amount of water released through the skin. And then, after drinking the tea, the weight comes back to normal. This is not true! Together with water, slags are removed, strengthening the metabolism. Namely because of his wrong speed, the person gets fat: the body simply does not have time to process the eaten food and sends it "in reserve", that is turns into fat. And in the bath the organism is cleaned and starts working correctly. Therefore, weight loss does not occur directly in the bath, but after it. To maintain the effect of a good metabolism, you need to go to the bath regularly.
You can argue for a long time which sauna is more useful, but insuch conversations do not make sense. For each people, the bath that he invented was useful. After all, our ancestors for centuries hone the technology of washing. So for the Russian people, our most useful bathhouse is the most useful!
